Mercedes-Benz is interested in seeing Sebastian Vettel at the wheel of a McLaren at some point in the future.

That is the admission of Norbert Haug, boss of the German carmaker's racing activities, in the wake of countryman Vettel's second dominant race win at the wheel of a Red Bull-branded car.

Haug has previously admitted Mercedes' interest in the 21-year-old German, who is under contract to the energy drink company until the end of next year.

"After that we will have to see, perhaps some day he will drive a silver arrows," he told the German newspaper Bild.

Vettel also has ties with BMW, with whom he debuted as a F1 test driver and first contested a grand prix, in the injured Robert Kubica's car at Indianapolis two years ago.

Part of Vettel's ongoing BMW deal, Mario Theissen confirmed, is that he drives an M5 on the road.

Seven time world champion Michael Schumacher said: "I can see him fighting now for the world championship."
